Like when I'm on the toilet? That's not really fair now is it.Nice progression and variations. Like the tats too, she naked or is that some dynamic clothing?
She be naked my boy,when I was designing her I knew she had to have less armor then the rest of characters in the set,because she needed to be able to move fast and have no restrictions in her movement.Plus since her species is an of shoot of humans,she has greater durability & dexterity then normal humans.
You know, I was going to mention the skin thing as well. I'm glad to see that you thought far enough to give reasons as to why she's naked other than "lol hurrr boobs" method. As far as colors go, I really really dig the color you chose for the spider legs in the second version. Gives it more of an organic bone type feel. Depending on her environment, I don't know which color would be better.I can see that the legs are still long but that may just be a character trait or maybe an artist trait. I also liked the idea of your last character with the blade idea. You got me curious with the shield boots thing though.
Oh dude, as for requests for Shade's armor, I'm thinking it should be biased on dragons or monsters. I'd like to see teeth and claws in the armor design somehow and it doesn't all need to be just for Shade either. I'm looking to incorporating the idea into all of their armors. Just remember the main soldier types of infantry, archer, medical and heavy. Oh, also beast masters as well. I've got a few ideas but I'd like to see what you can come up with and using that as a jump off point.
